    Austerity and identity formation: How welfare cutbacks condition narratives of sickness2022In: Sociology of Health and Illness, ISSN 0141-9889, E-ISSN 1467-9566, Vol. 44, no 8, p. 1270-1286Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, Swedish sick insurance has become more restrictive. In this article, we analyse how people not being granted payments, despite being seriously ill, are affected. Scholarship on identity formation and sickness stress the importance of constructing narratives in order to come to terms with one’s situation. Our analysis of 30 qualitative interviews with people diagnosed with ME/CFS shows that workfare politics conditions such identity formation and often prevent it from taking place. Interviewees describe extreme stress as a result of their contacts with the Social Insurance Agency (SIA), which results in a perpetual crisis that is renewed with each new denied application. In particular, the sense of not having a future means that it is hard to construct narratives to make sense of one’s situation. To escape the perpetual crisis, some people have politicised their situation, constructing a narrative about themselves as suffering from oppressive politics. Others have escaped by not applying for sick insurance or other social insurances. But generally speaking, the most common effect of being denied sick insurance is an on-going crisis that leads to deteriorating health.

    Marknadsstaten: om vad den svenska staten gör med marknaderna - och marknaderna med staten2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har många verksamheter förts över från stat och kommun till företag som agerar på marknader. Men den svenska staten är fortfarande djupt engagerad i marknaderna. Den har utvecklat en särskild marknadspolitik och en fjärdedel av de statliga myndigheterna har som huvuduppgift att organisera marknader. Samtidigt är marknadspolitiken abstrakt och svårfångad, och myndigheterna arbetar främst med mjuka och otydliga påverkansmetoder. Trots alla insatser finns det en utbredd tro på att marknader fungerar bäst om de lämnas ifred. Statens politik ger utrymme för andra att utöva makt. Genom djupstudier av olika marknader åskådliggör boken hur myndigheterna samarbetar med säljarna och hur säljarna får en stark position. Boken riktar sig till alla som är intresserade av den moderna statens omvandling: lärare och forskare vid universitet och högskolor, politiker, tjänstemän i stat och näringsliv och den samhällsintresserade medborgaren.

    Makten över stadens offentliga rum: Professionerna och hur de modernistiska idéerna vann kampen om stadsplaneringen2017In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 119, no 3, p. 441-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modernist ideas were written into the building code of 1931 and increased over timewhere traditional cities were banned and supposed to be turned down. How managedmodernists this in the critical juncture. One of their proponents was StockholmsByggnadsförening, where builders, contractors and private and public plannersand architects meet. My questions are how modernist architects could imposethe views of Byggnadsföreningen and if their activities in this organization couldexplain why modernist ideas so fast could impose building code and legislation.I found that it was a self-amplifying process where central modernist architectsmanaged to reach leading positions after 1924 when the organization implementedshort periods for members of the board. This was preceded by a decline of the organizationduring WWI and a self-eroding process for ideas of traditional city-planningwhere modernist architects challenged them with effectivity-arguments thatclamed modernist ideas were scientific and traditional ideas outdated.

    Abstract [sv]

    Högskolestiftelser. Förslaget att driva svenska universitet i stiftelseform ­öppnar för bolagisering. Men det är ingen riktig utredning, utan en politisk pamflett utan ­eftertanke. Privatisering av universitet hotar både oberoendet, forskningskvaliteten och samhällsnyttan, skriver 36 forskare vid svenska högskolor och universitet.

    Politik, förvaltning eller mittemellan?: En studie av kommunal metagovernance2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersöker hur horisontella governancestrukturer påverkar olika mekanismer för metagovernance. Fokus för undersökningen är Eskilstuna kommun som valt att förändra synen på styrning från vertikal till horisontell, från government till governance. Då metagovernance innebär indirekt och informell styrning i pågående processer studerades just en pågående process där tjänstemän under nätverksliknande former skulle utforma en handlingsplan. Uppdraget var initierat från den politiska nivån.

    Undersökningen är uppdelad i två delar. Den första delen är en allmänt inriktad respondentundersökning som handlar om de förändrade strukturerna i organisationen. Den andra delen är en fallstudie som baseras på deltagande observationer samt intervjuer och handlar om förekomsten av metagovernance i en specifik policyprocess.

    Efter undersökningen visade det sig att respondentundersökningen och fallstudien genererade lite olika resultat. Sett till fallstudien hade inte den horisontellt baserade styrningen påverkat förutsättningen för metagovernance och att tjänstemännen i hög grad anteciperar sina politikers viljor samt att rollfördelningen under processen har varit tydlig.

    Den mer allmänt inriktade respondentundersökningen visade däremot att den horisontella strukturen har komplicerat förhållandet mellan politik och förvaltning, gjort rollerna otydligare och att de politiska nämnderna fått en försvagad ställning till förmån för höga tjänstemän och även för kommunstyrelsen.

    Skillnaderna i resultaten förklaras till stor del av egenskaper som rör det specifika fallet som studerats. I och med att metagovernance via antecipering förekom krävdes ingen ytterligare styrning och i och med detta aktualiserades inte heller de problematiska strukturer och rollfördelningar som respondentundersökningen visar på.

    Typical situations for managers in the Swedish public sector: cluster analysis of working conditions using the job demands resources model2012In: International Public Management Journal, ISSN 1096-7494, E-ISSN 1559-3169, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 100-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Managers in many public domains have to meet major challenges today, which is why it is essential to focus on their working conditions in order to develop a sustainable situation. In the present study, the aim was to explore different types of managerial situations and how they discriminate in health, motivation, and performance outcomes. Using the job demands-resources model as a framework, four demands and three resources were included in a cluster analysis in order to answer the research question. In total, 548 managers in Sweden participated, including heads of department, middle managers, firstline managers, team leaders, and functional managers. The most important finding was that the eight clusters of managerial situations that were found discriminated in a distinct way against each other regarding health, motivation, and performance. The results can be used as guidance for organizational intervention as both very satisfactory and very unsatisfactory situations are identified.

    Border Bureaucracies: A Literature Review of Discretion in Migration Control2023Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This literature review summarizes findings from 63 articles published between 2001 and 2020 that study discretion of frontline workers at migration control. The results demonstrate that discretionary practices in various migration control situations (e.g., border zones, migration agencies, courts, public welfare services, and detention centers) are widespread but share common patterns. Frontline workers’ racialized prejudices and perceptions of migrant deservingness were the most dominant patterns found in the data, although there were some disagreements about which were most influential. Discretion of frontline workers was described as foremost detrimental to migrants, as itamplified the migrants’ vulnerable situations, even if it occasionally could increase individual migrants’ room for agency and strategic maneuvering. Contrary to the assumption underpinning the control gap-thesis in immigration policy literature that governments’ capacity to control migration is hampered by the significant discretion at the frontlines, many studies in our sample describe how governments shape the discretionary practices of frontline workers through informal, subtle, and opaque governing strategies. These informal governing strategies enable central governments to deflect responsibility for discriminatory and inhumane policy outcomes.

    Systematic exploration of scenario spaces2016In: Foresight, ISSN 1463-6689, E-ISSN 1465-9832, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 59-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - Scenarios have become a vital methodological approach in business as well as in public policy. When scenarios are used to guide analysis and decision-making, the aim is typically robustness and in this context we argue that two main problems at scenario set level is conservatism, i.e. all scenarios are close to a perceived business-as-usual trajectory and lack of balance in the sense of arbitrarily mixing some conservative and some extreme scenarios. The purpose of this paper is to address these shortcomings by proposing a methodology for generating sets of scenarios which are in a mathematical sense maximally diverse. Design/methodology/approach - In this paper, we develop a systematic methodology, Scenario Diversity Analysis (SDA), which addresses the problems of broad span vs conservatism and imbalance. From a given set of variables with associated states, SDA generates scenario sets where the scenarios are in a quantifiable sense maximally different and therefore best span the whole set of feasible scenarios. Findings - The usefulness of the methodology is exemplified by applying it to sets of storylines of the emissions scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This ex-post analysis shows that the storylines were not maximally diverse and given the challenges ahead with regard to emissions reduction and adaptation planning, we argue that it is important to strive for diversity when developing scenario sets for climate change research. Originality/value - The proposed methodology adds significant novel features to the field of systematic scenario generation, especially with regard to scenario diversity. The methodology also enables the combination of systematics with the distinct future logics of good intuitive logics scenarios.

    Consulting or holding to account?: The Swedish National Audit Office as an agent of change in public administration2017In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 119, no 1, p. 91-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the impact of the performance audits of a national audit office, Sweden’s Riksrevisionen, on the public administration it audits. It does so by investigating how the auditee perceives their relationship with the auditor in terms of accountability and consulting with the aim to explore the role of the national audit office as an agent of change in the entities of the public administration. Riksrevi- sionen is found to take a consulting approach in their performance audits and the stronger the relationship is perceived as consulting, the higher the propensity to change. The same relationship is found with regard to the accountability relationship when the accountability pressure is perceived internally in the organization. When the accountability pressure is external no relationship with change can be corroborated.

    Organizing for social sustainability: Governance through bureaucratization in meta-organizations2012In: Sustainability: Science, Practice, & Policy, E-ISSN 1548-7733, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 50-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The difficulties nation states face when attempting to use traditional legal means to cope with transnational phenom-ena such as environmental degradation, international labor conditions, and global trade have created an opportunity for the emergence of new types of regulations. These rules are often issued by organizations that produce voluntary measures such as standards and action plans to influence the behavior of individuals and institutions. These are in many cases meta-organizations that have other organizations rather than individuals as members. They are important links in the process of creating and diffusing dominant definitions in the “ideoscape” of influential policy concepts such as sustainable development. This article explores how two meta-organizations, Fairtrade International (FLO) and Organic Forum, shape the concepts of fair trade and organic food by providing ideas and content to the ideoscape of sustainable development. We argue that this process takes place by governance through bureaucratization in which fair trade and organic food become formalized, precisely defined, and made visible. This in turn determines how—or even if—the social dimension of sustainability can be made into policy. Furthermore, we find explanations in these processes as to why the social dimension of sustainability tends to be the most underdeveloped. We conclude that bureaucratization is also a form of politics, although not one that is as easily recognizable as an open power struggle.

    RESILIENCE THINKING: LESSONS FOR PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION2016In: Public Administration, ISSN 0033-3298, E-ISSN 1467-9299, Vol. 94, no 2, p. 364-380Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The notion of resilience is rapidly gaining influence in public administration practice and research, but a more comprehensive resilience research agenda in public administration is yet to emerge. This article aims to clarify how experiences and potential contributions from social-ecological resilience research can inform resilience studies in public administration. By contrasting key components of the resilience paradigm and its policy prescriptions with established findings from public administration research, a set of key shortcomings of social-ecological resilience thinking are identified: (1) deterministic systems models; (2) simplified accounts of politics and policy; and (3) a lack of systematic and generalizable empirical studies. To avoid these shortcomings, it is suggested that public administration resilience studies should explore multiple and competing models for how resilience can be generated; analyse trade-offs between resilience and other values of public administration; avoid systems theoretical resilience models; and apply the notion of resilience in areas beyond crisis management.

    Steering ‘green’ innovation policy toward sustainability? Lessons from implementing EIP-AGRI in Sweden2023In: Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions, ISSN 2210-4224, E-ISSN 2210-4232, Vol. 48, article id 100732Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article critically examines the state's steering capacity of ‘green innovation’ programs using Sweden's implementation of the agricultural European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI) as a case representing part of the EU's Green Deal. The innovations should promote the competitiveness of rural areas and contribute to national environmental protection and climate goals.

    We found that despite expectations, implementation rests on compartmentalized networking within the agricultural sector, prioritizing increased ‘competitiveness’ before ‘green’ development, and interpreting ‘innovation’ mainly in the technical sense. The results indicate that the state´s steering capacity of ‘green innovation’ programs meets several obstacles: the overall goals from the top tend to be both too many and too vague, leaving it to the administration to interpret what kinds of features should be prioritized from below. The state's steering in the case of EIP-AGRI relies mostly on internal agricultural expertise contrary to previous research that suggests a recent ‘de-compartmentalisation’ of European agricultural policymaking.

    Vård och ideologi: Narkomanvården som politiskt slagfält2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this book is threefold: 1) to examine what kind of drug treatment that has been propagated by Swedish state authorities during the years 1960-2000, and the presuppositions about the character of drug misuse and treatment that this has been founded on; 2) to analyse state government of a treatment field that hasn’t really been governed according to earlier research; 3) to investigate the ideological dimension of the Swedish drug treatment field. The point of departure for the analysis is to study the drug treatment as an ideological project, something that allows an investigation of ideological standpoints in official reports and the parliamentary material, but also make an ideology analysis of the central bureaucracy’s management of the treatment homes possible.

    No undisputable and effective treatment method has been established since the problem was introduced in the middle of the 1960s, and the drug problem has continually been an excellent question for political quarrels and ideological positioning. Because of its role as a serious problem, the drug issue has been a suitable battlefield where everybody has had to acknowledge the legitimacy in discussing and trying to solve the problem. Thoughts on causes and suggestions for solutions have played a wide political field where anything from child care and family policy to pressure of taxation and the extension of the railway network have been discussed. Beyond the imperative agreement that a highly serious problem was discussed, politicians, bureaucrats and treatment suppliers have been able to present their own ideological visions of the good society and the good citizen.

    Earlier research has questioned the rationality of Swedish drug treatment’s methods and management and this project aims to problematize this picture. A focus on the treatment field’s ideological content shows us that politicians as well as bureaucrats have had clearly articulated opinions on the purpose of the treatment as well as its means. It is also shown that Swedish drug treatment has been the subject of rigorous ideological management, something that could contribute to a renewed interest in ideology analysis and hopefully also broaden scientific discussions on the goals and means of drug treatment and social care. The research results could ultimately benefit discussions on both a political and a treatment field level, as they aim to bring analytical tools to identify the ideological ballast included in all discussions on what is otherwise supposed to be purely technical issues.

    Uppsatsen undersöker hur analys- och utvärderingsmyndigheter positioneras, det vill säga organiseras i relation till regeringen och andra aktörer, och identifierar och diskuterar faktorer som kan bidra till att förklara dessa myndigheters positionering.

    Det teoretiska ramverket om positionering hämtas från litteratur om metagovernance och styrning genom organisering.

    Utgångspunkten är att analys- och utvärderingsmyndigheter existerar i en kontext med grundläggande normer om oberoende. Olika typer av oberoende kan påverka verksamhetens trovärdighet. Samtidigt är positionering är ett centralt styrmedel för regeringen och bygger på strategisk placering av myndigheter gentemot Regeringskansliet och andra intressenter. Att myndigheter interagerar med olika aktörer är inte detsamma som att de är beroende av dem. Men det betyder att dessa aktörer har någon typ av inverkan på verksamheten. Spänningen mellan ett centralt styrmedel och normer om oberoende ger att analys- och utvärderingsmyndigheter utgör en intressant kontext för att studera positionering. Styrningen innehåller inte bara avvägningar mellan kontroll och ansvarsutkrävande utan även mellan uppfattningar om trovärdighet och möjligheten att använda myndigheterna för att uppnå politiska mål.

    Meta-governance as partial organization2023In: Administrative Theory & Praxis, ISSN 1084-1806, Vol. 45, no 3, p. 192-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper develops a decision-based approach to meta-governance by drawing on insights from studies of organization outside of formal organizations. We argue that meta-governance can be analyzed as a form of partial organization of interactive arenas. Meta-governance has become an important concept in theorizing the role of government in contemporary governance, particularly in the context of shaping and providing guidance to different interactive arenas, such as networks and quasi-markets. Meta-governance is, however, also a broad and ambiguous concept, which limits its ability to guide empirical research on the actual practices of governing and the actors involved. Rather than presenting a new perspective on meta-governance, the framework of partial organization enables analysis of the processes behind the formation of meta-governance strategies. By focusing on decision-making, it offers a dynamic understanding of the stepwise development of meta-governance, reflecting an emerging, rather than predefined, rationality of governance arrangements.

    Meta-governing the circular economy: Public procurement as an emerging strategy for circular transition in Sweden2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change and the global waste crisis call for action to create effective and long-term sustainability transitions. They present a challenge to governance where state leaders and policy makers are increasingly turning to public procurement as a strategy to ‘meta-govern’ towards circular economy. This paper explores the usefulness of a decision-based organizational perspective (Ek Österberg & Qvist 2023) to describe and analyze why and how public procurement emerges as a key governance strategy in the circular transition. It reports on an ongoing qualitative study on sustainable and circular procurement in Sweden.

    Public Sector Innovation as Governance Reform: A Comparative Analysis of Competitive and Collaborative Strategies in the Swedish Transport Sector2020In: Administration & Society, ISSN 0095-3997, E-ISSN 1552-3039, Vol. 52, no 2, p. 292-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The constraining impact of bureaucracy on creative problem solving has been a recurring theme in research on public innovation, and public actors increasingly seek to “steer” innovation through interactive spaces for collaboration and competition. This article examines this form of “meta-governance” in the case of the Swedish Transport Administration and reveals a pattern where the initial opening of arenas for innovation is followed by a countermovement toward organization. Findings suggest that the introduction of elements of organization, such as hierarchy, rules, and membership, in governance spaces is a key strategy for coming to grips with a new innovation promoting role.

    Statens roll i svensk krisberedskap: En idéanalys av den nationella strategin för skydd av samhällsviktig verksamhet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsens syfte är att undersöka hur statens roll i krisberedskapen påverkas av det resiliensperspektiv som utgör grunden i den nationella strategin för skydd av samhällsviktig verksamhet. Uppsatsens frågeställningar är: ”Vilken form tar sig statens makt gentemot det omgivande samhället?” och ”Vilket önskvärt tillstånd för statens roll i krisberedskapen uttrycks i strategin?” Med utgångspunkt i governance-teori skapas ett analysverktyg med idealtyper av statens roll i samhällsstyrningen. Det används sedan för att analysera strategin. Analysen kompletteras av en intervju med en informant som har kunskap om strategins innehåll och om arbetet att ta fram den. Analysen visar att staten använder sig av samverkan när det är nödvändigt, men behåller samtidigt stort inflytande över policyprocessen. Vidare är det få av dimensionerna där den önskvärda rollen för staten faller helt inom den ena eller den andra kategorin i analysverktyget – ofta finns det drag av såväl government som governance.

    Social citizenship rights and social insurance replacement rate validity: pitfalls and possibilities2013In: Journal of European Public Policy, ISSN 1350-1763, E-ISSN 1466-4429, Vol. 20, no 9, p. 1251-1266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The comparative analysis of welfare states has been greatly advanced by rights-based measurements of social provisions. Social insurance replacement rates have figured prominently here. Apparently, there is considerable confusion about the validity of replacement rates and their comparability across different datasets. The purpose of this study is to outline a refined institutional perspective in the comparative analysis of welfare states focusing on the character of social citizenship rights. We show that social insurance replacement rates from different datasets differ in their underlying theoretical framework for policy analysis and therefore capture different aspects of how welfare states secure the livelihood of citizens in periods of work incapacity. Analysing validity solely on the basis of replacement rate point estimates is therefore misleading. We show that the close focus on social citizenship rights and programmatic design in the Social Citizenship Indicator Programme (SCIP) carries great potential for causal welfare state analysis.

    Megaprojektet Nya Karolinska Solna: Beslutsprocesserna bakom en sjukvårdsreform2021Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nya Karolinska Solna (NKS) har fått stor medial uppmärksamhet under senare år. Sjukhusbygget har pågått under lång tid, rymt en stor budget och berört många människor. Det har ömsom hyllats, ömsom ifrågasatts. I den här boken redovisas resultaten av ett treårigt forskningsprojekt som har undersökt beslutsprocesserna bakom NKS. Boken handlar om de idéer som har varit betydelsefulla i beslutsprocesserna, om de aktörer som har agerat i dessa processer och om hur processerna har organiserats och kontrollerats. Ambitionen med boken är att öka förståelsen för och kunskapen om den typ av komplexa beslutsprocesser som kännetecknar megaprojekt som NKS. Projektet har bedrivits vid Stockholms universitet i ett samarbete mellan Statsvetenskapliga institutionen, Stockholms centrum för forskning om offentlig sektor (Score) och Kulturgeografiska institutionen.

    Hierarchisation and fuzziness: The power of interlinked categories in urban planning2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we ask how categories enable and constrain action in complex and long-term processes of municipal urban planning. Whereas previous studies to a large extent have focused on the conditions for corporations and their products, we develop theoretical insights about categorisation from the more scarcely investigated empirical context of the public sector. By an in-depth investigation of how the Swedish municipality of Varberg managed and organized large, complex urban planning changes, we show how two significantly different but closely interlinked categories simultaneously enabled and limited the scope and focus of these large-scale changes. More specifically we identify two distinct categories – one “project category” used to organize the specific urban planning process, and one “vision category” developed to govern the municipality as a whole – and explore how they influence one another and how they both individually and together shape the focus and scope of the change process. Through these two categories the complex and long-term planning is made sense of and is given structure and steerage in terms of both generative capabilities and constraints. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about how categorisation creates power and action capabilities and its implications on democratic processes. Organisational categories, when they are taken on-board, are often perceived as natural and neutral and are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Our study shows the need to also ask questions about what are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society may not be allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Värdeladdad organisering: kategoriers betydelse för stadsutvecklingsarbete2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of this report is the organising of on-going urban developments taking place within the municipality of Varberg. Large, public initiatives on urban planning often run over long time periods, involve multiple actors in society, and are characterised by uncertainty and lack of information. With the help of organisation theory on social categories we show how room for manoeuvre and conditions for activity are created in the on-going developments in Varberg. Our analysis highlights in particular two categories that are governing the urban planning of the municipality: (a) three change processes are organised into one single “City development project” and (b) the overarching governance is articulated through a vision statement for the municipality to become the creative centre of the west coast in year 2025. Categories play a dual role as they both enable and constrain organizational as well as individual behaviour. More specifically, the study shows how some projects, such as the sub-project about the new residential neighbourhood West Port (Västerport) by the sea, and some ideas, such as the assumption that urban development leads creativity are highlighted and prioritised as a consequence of the categories identified. However, the study also reveals how, simultaneously, other projects and issues are downplayed or remain in the background. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about democratic implications of the use of organisational categories, that often, when they are taken on-board, are perceived as natural and neutral, are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Another side of the use of categories, however, is about what questions, issues and perspectives that are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society are not allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Kommunerna och demosproblemet: En analys av principerna bakom sophämtningsavgifterna2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    English Title: Municipalities and the problem of Demos - An analysis of the principles behind the refuse collection fees.

    This is a bachelor’s thesis with the aim to study how different input variables e.g. the number of collections and the municipality´s costs may form the refuse collection fee. But also other input variables may affect some parts of the refuse collection fee like the democratic influence or the value of the real estate.

    Especially the relationship between permanent residents and the non-permanent residents fee are studied.

    The democratic view is considered, as a property owner in a Swedish municipality not automatically is allowed to vote, unless the person is a permanent resident of that particular municipality. If the citizen owns property in many municipalities, it will become impossible to have a full democratic influence in any municipalities but one -The municipality where he or she lives the majority if his time.

    The analysis shows that the relative value of the real estate surprisingly has some impact on the refuse collection fee which is proven to be statistically significant.

    Leksaker och CE-märkningar: det mobila ansvaret2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report examines the organization and distribution of responsibility for toys. Toys are one of many product categories to which the regulation of CE-marking applies. CE-marking in turn is part of the EU program for product safety of the Single Market, called The New Approach. Hence, by following the responsibility distribution for toys it is possible to analyze how the New Approach and the EU organizes responsibility. The report concludes that there is not one single actor responsible for toys placed on the market. Moreover, by the specific way of organizing markets that the New Approach prescribes, responsibility is not only distributed among several organizations, but also rather diffused.

    The politics of supply chain regulations: Towards foreign corporate accountability in the area of human rights and the environment?2023In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 853-869Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, binding regulations in the “home states” of corporations have emerged mainly in the Global North with the aim of holding corporations accountable for human rights and environmental impacts throughout their supply chains. However, we still need a better understanding about to what extent such regulations contribute to enhance “foreign corporate accountability (FCA).” This article introduces a special issue that theorizes and empirically investigates foreign accountability dynamics. We do so by advancing an analytical framework that conceptualizes FCA and identify important contextual conditions that help to explain accountability dynamics. Applying this framework, we show that the drafting, implementation, and enforcement of such regulations are highly political processes, wherein competing ideas embedded within unequal actor constellations and institutional environments shape the possibilities to achieve more transformative change. By theorizing and empirically investigating FCA dynamics, we contribute to advance debates about the sustainability governance of global supply chains.
